Welcome to Effingham High School


Welcome to Effingham High School! Effingham High School is an environment that differs from all other high schools. EHS is a building engrossed every day in innovation, excitement, energy, and celebration. From the classroom to the theatre to the athletic fields, the staff and students are on fire for their school and community. The teachers at Effingham High School are recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for their innovative teaching practices.

Students at Effingham High School have the opportunity to take part in 23 different dual credit courses, produce award winning theatre shows, earn athletic scholarships to major universities, and are awarded over 1 million dollars in academic scholarships annually.

Attention Incoming Freshmen: 

Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, all freshman will be required to have a TI-84 graphing calculator. We anticipate these calculators selling out quickly at local stores, so we wanted parents and guardians to have ample time to acquire one.

Lifetouch picture forms have been distributed to EHS students.  Picture day is August 24th for ID photos and school pictures.  Please check with your child for the form.
